Most people associate root canals as being the most painful dental procedure. The truth is root canal technology has evolved so much in the last decade that it’s become a painless procedure. Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. This helps avoid further damage to the tooth, which can lead to extraction and dental implants.
Patients typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. During root canal treatment, Dr. Shaban carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space. The root canal treatment is completed with minimum pain and discomfort.
Dr. Shaban has performed many root canal treatments each year safely, effectively, and comfortably. If you’re experiencing dental pain or have been told you need a root canal, contact us today.
